Old Cleveland Road and Gateway on-ramp upgrade

We are upgrading the westbound lanes of Old Cleveland Road, between the Old Cleveland off-ramp (260m east of Mount Petrie Road) and the Gateway Motorway on-ramp intersection, at Belmont.

This project will reduce congestion, delays and travel time through the area and improve road safety by reducing queue lengths on Old Cleveland Road and westbound off-ramp at Mount Petrie Road during morning peak periods.
